Ok I went away for Vacation, My son waited to long before turning on car. Came home, boosted car with NOCO Genius Booster. Turned on in one shot, all of a sudden I notice all these lights were on, Engine, AWD, SLIP, VDC Off. Engine light has gone away. I reset the other lights with a Launch 129x Code Readers "2021 Model" Error Codes Erased Fine. next day lights came on. So I took her out for a spin yesterday to see if some driving would help reset and clear the error codes.

While Driving for a few, I noticed the RPM Needle was jumping on its own, Temperature gauge stopped working, AC Stopped working, Lighter charger light Ring was flickering as if it had a loose ground also the FX45 Tranny Started Kicking like a horse after 2nd gear, So I bought her home and parked her, Tonight I tried to start her up, but She would not, I noticed after 3 crank attempts battery was low, So i boosted her up again and she started right up, all lights are back including the engine light but my charger is ring light is not flickering anymore after boost. So I am thinking Maybe My battery cells are two low? As This is the 3rd time I had to boost her.

Maybe I should do a live battery Check with the Launch Code Reader 129X ?

Has anyone had a similar issue with a bad battery? Battery is about 4 years old now :eek:/

Thanks for your response all.

I would start with a brand new battery regardless of how good jump box is if a cell is bad it will not hold a charge and cause all kinds of electrical issues like your describing. I would start there

Many auto parts stores will check your battery for free. They'll load test it to see whether it's still healthy or needs replacing. I'd start there.
